Elections Israel, Netanyahu in the lead

The coalition of the former prime minister in the lead with at least 61 seats. Great exploit of religious Zionism

61 seats in the Knesset won by the coalition of former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the legislative elections. This was reported by the exit polls cited by Channel 12, while for the broadcaster Kan the seats would be 62 for the former premier. On the other hand, there are 55 (or 54 for Kan) the seats that, again according to the exit polls, would go to the outgoing coalition of Prime Minister Yair Lapid. Finally, four seats would be won by the Hadash-Tall left.

Great exploit for the formation of far-right religious Zionism by Bezalel Smotrich who would have won 14 seats in the Knesset according to Channel 12 and Channel 13. The Jerusalem Post reports that this is a “significant increase over previous years”. In the 2021 elections he had won six seats in the Israeli parliament.

With the polls closed, as reported by the Electoral Commission, thehighest turnout since 1999.
